slow moving heavy rains. today, another shot of storms coming through during the evening. and it looks like we may have the front kick off cloud and isolated storms on tuesday even. and today, some of the storms will be potential flooding in some areas. 92 degrees the two degree guarantee. we will drop into the upper 60s to near 70 as drier winds build in and we are looking for tomorrow, still hot and still an isolated storm but less humid with high temperatures back into the lower 90s. >> reporter: we are doing okaybetween the beltway the other than construction. traffic is moving pretty well. no problems to report between the baltimore beltway and capital beltway. here at the jfx we did have a disabled vehicle on the northbound side to the left of the screen. tow truck pulled that away. not ait canning traffic. 450 -- affecting traffic. 450 is now back open. she was considered one of
